I share these samples to preserve the cultural influence the Commodore Amiga has had on electronic music. Amiga's audio chip (PAULA) and its music making software like (Ultimate) Soundtracker, ProTracker and NoiseTracker create a distinct sound. I always loved the "Amiga music" when playing computer games as kid. I hope these samples will inspire people to keep using the Amiga sound.
"ST-01 and most of the samples from ST-02 were made by Karsten Obarski, who invented the tracker with his Ultimate SoundTracker." The rest is not known to me. For more info about SoundTracker see http://membres.multimania.fr/fonzo/hotp1-b.html
I did not make this pack, here's what the collectors wrote:

Note: when using these samples in modern DAWs you need to pitch the samples down a couple of octaves.
